    I was wondering if it was possible to switch the logic board of the 13" Mid 2010 model with the 2009 model of the same size? I know the alignments are exactly the same on both models, but I am looking for a better graphics integrated graphics card, something better than the 9400m from Nvidia.

    I search iFixit but found nothing, has anyone here tried doing that and/or succeeded/failed?

    Any help would be appreciated!!

    Thanks in advance guys!

    You know it'd be much less trouble and time to just build yourself a cheap gaming PC?

    Apart from the fact that you may buy a new logicboard which might not even work into your older MBP, and that you can't return, you're still stuck with crappy integrated graphics, as the 320M isn't all that much better.
